Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (S.C.) released a statement on Twitter Thursday noon, regarding the escalating battle between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Just one day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told President Trump he could not hold his State of the Union address in the House, due to the government shutdown, President Trump struck back – by cancelling Pelosi’s scheduled international trip, less than an hour before she was to depart.

The president told Pelosi her trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan was being postponed, due to the government shutdown, but added that she was quite welcome to continue the trip by flying commercial if she preferred.

Sen. Graham released the following statement on Twitter in response:

One sophomoric response does not deserve another. Speaker Pelosi’s threat to cancel the State of the Union is very irresponsible and blatantly political. President Trump denying Speaker Pelosi military travel to visit our troops in Afghanistan, our allies in Egypt and NATO is also inappropriate.

I am glad the Speaker wants to meet our troops and hear from our commanders and allies. I am very disappointed she’s playing politics with the State of the Union. I wish our political leadership could find the same desire to work for common goals as those who serve our nation in uniform and other capacities.
